In the heart of London's theater district opposite the Savoy Hotel, with rooms for up to $800 a night, scores of people are lingering patiently on a balmy summer evening.Government policymaking has been paralyzed, unable to address the causes of the disillusionment that led to 2016's vote for Brexit while eight years and almost 140 billion pounds ($184 billion) of spending cuts hit public services and social aid.While London is the wealthiest region in northern Europe, the U.K. is also home to nine of its 10 poorest regions.Prime Minister Theresa May, meanwhile, is battling daily to hold onto her leadership.
